Update: April, 03/2012 - 10:22

HA NOI — Wood processors must be located at least 3km from the edge of natural forests, under a draft decision by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.

Processors must also ensure the timber they receive has been legally logged.

Authorised agencies will carry out periodic inspections of wood yards every two years, in addition to impromptu inspections, the ministry said. — VNS
